Latinos in Oregon Report

Latinos in Oregon explores the contributions that Latinos have made to the state and the disparities that still exist between Latino and white Oregonians by examining trends among a variety of indicators over the past five to 15 years.


Key findings:

  • Oregon’s Latino population is young, diverse and growing due to an increase in the number of U.S.-born Latino Oregonians
  • While more Latino students are graduating, the achievement gap between Latino and white students starts early and persists.
  • Latino Oregonians are essential to the state’s economy but are still at an economic disadvantage compared to white Oregonians.
  • While Latino health status is improving in some areas, disparities still exist for health access and outcomes.
